This is the second of Jo's books that I have read, the first being "The Snowman", this was as good as that, infact i think this could be even slightly better than that!
Full of twists and turns, his books give you a real feel for life in Norway. What is so good about Jo Nesbo compared to other Crime authors' is that he really does keep you guessing, as to who the murderer is, just when you think aha! I know who it is, you turn a few more pages, and realise oh, perhaps not!
I did guesss corectly near the end, but even then it wan't quite as I thought, with yet another twist, brilliant!!
On a purely observational point - It has been referred to many times that Jo Nesbo is the "next Stieg Larson", and although they are similar their writing styles are quite different, however, one thing they do have in common (which I mentioned on a review for one of Stieg's books) is that Jo also is "Another Coffee Lover", so many times was "Coffee" mentioned in this book (as Stieg does in his), they're either; "putting the coffee machine on / having a cup of coffee / or going out for a coffee!", this tickles me immensely, they REALLY must be Coffee lovers in Norway!!!!
